  • 03/26/17--15:08: Segar Bastard

  • In the 19th century officials (umpires and referees as they were until 1891) were often drawn from among the ranks of the players.
    Segar Bastard of Upton Park refereed the 1878 FA Cup Final at the age of 24.
    Mr Bastard had the distinction of refereeing an international match before playing in one.

    He took charge of the 60 minute match between England and Wales at a snowy Oval in January 1879.
    In March 1880 he made his sole internationl appearance as a player, playing wide on the right in a 5-4 defeat in Glasgow.
    Two days later he umpired in the Wales v England match at Wrexham.

    In 1881 Mr Bastard oversaw Wales' shock 1-0 over England at Blackburn (again in the snow).

    In 1882 he acted as Umpire in England's games with Scotland (a 5-1 defeat) and Wales (a 5-3 defeat).

    As a player his greatest successes came in 1882-83 & 1883-84, winning the London Senior Cup with Upton Park.

    Hertha was a steamship that cruised the Havel River. It so impressed young Fritz Lindner that when he formed a football club in 1892 he took not only the name of the ship, but also its blue and white livery. 

    Berliner Fußball-Club Hertha 92 was founded on 25.07.92 by Fritz and his brother Max and the Lorenz brothers, Otto and Willi. These were 16-17 year old youths.
    In 1900 the club were founder members of the Deutscher Fußball-Bund .

  • 04/03/17--11:40: Alcock on Lancashire
  • Though the introduction of Association football into Lancashire about the same period as the establishment of the Cup, the first of an innumerable succession of trophies of a similar kind, was a mere coincidence and in no way connected, it is curious, considering the conspicuous part Lancashire clubs have played in the competition of late years, that their origin should have been coeval The paternity of the Association game in Lancashire may be claimed by Mr. J. C. Kay, an old Harrovian, who subsequently made himself a reputation in another branch of sport, as a lawn tennis player of no small ability, as well as manager of perhaps the best organized lawn tennis meeting in the kingdom" that which takes place annually on the ground of the Liverpool Cricket Club. Educated at Harrow, it was only natural that the primitive game in use in Lancashire should have been based very much on the eccentric admixture of different codes to which young Harrow had been used for generation after generation. The introduction of the Association game into Lancashire was, in fact, in a very great measure the work of an old Harrovian, as, some twenty years before, the initiation of the movement which practically led to the revival of football on a proper basis was to a considerable extent the work of a few keen athletes who had graduated at his School. To East Lancashire, in particular, belongs the credit of fostering the game in its infancy, as well as of assisting in the development which has resulted in making Lancashire one of the most powerful influences in Association football Bolton, I believe, was the first place which took at all kindly to the new sport, and, under Mr. Kay's watchful eye, the Harrow game, or perhaps as near a reproduction as could be devised to suit local requirements, for a time supplied all the wants of the lads who were undergoing their novitiate in football. Practice took place in the evenings, and, in fact, the game was of a very primitive kind, followed after the hard work of the day had been completed. It was not long, though, before an attempt was made to evolve something like system out of the rough efforts of these pioneers of Lancashire football. The first result of this organization, I have reason to believe, was the Bolton Wanderers club, which has outlived the many, and some of them excellent, changes through which football has gone during the last quarter of a century, and still remains a power in the land; in fact, one of the most influential combinations of the same kind in the north of England.


    C.W Alcock  Football: The Association Game  (1906) 



    Bolton Wanderers

    C.W Alcock is correct in that it was John Charles Kay, along with his brother, who took the Harrow game to Lancashire, but it was first played at Turton, rather than Bolton.

    Mr Alcock  overlooks the 'first wave' of Lancashire clubs (Turton, Darwen) who sowed the seeds that produced illustrious clubs such as Blackburn Rovers (f.1875).
    Bolton Wanderers came into being in 1877, evolving from  Christ Church F.C (f.1874).

    Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette 19.10.71


    John Charles Thring was instrumental in developing two sets of rules during the pre-history of football.
     The Cambridge Rules of 1848 were an attempt at a compromise / unified code based on the games played at Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Winchester, and Thring's old school, Shrewsbury.
    In 1862 Thring was a master at Uppingham School when he developed 'The Simplest Game' (also known as  'The Uppingham Rules').
    These rules had some influence on the Football Association when they began formulating the Laws of the Game in 1863.
    Of course, whilst giving us the greatest and most popular game in the world, the Football Association ultimately failed in their goal of unifying football.
    Debates as to the relative merits, safety and propriety of football and Rugby feature widely in newspaper correspondence in the 19th century.
    Thring's appeal here went unheeded, and the west of England became something of a Rugby stronghold.

    After playing Scotland 3 times (3 defeats and 15 unanswered goals), Wales were offered a match against England at The Oval in January 1879.
    The weather was appalling but Wales , after so much anticipation, were particularly keen for the game to go ahead, There were no more than 300 spectators present (maybe as few as 85).
    A thick layer of snow covered the ground and it was agreed to play a truncated match of 30 minutes each way.

    This gave rise to 3 players having England careers that lasted just one hour despite not being injured or substituted. Neither of England's debutant scorers (Whitfield and Sorby) was selected again, and it is worth noting that 19 year old Rupert Anderson was a forward who went in goal when Remnant FC's Rev. W. Blackmore  failed  to turn up (on the only occasion he was selected for England).
    Contrary to some speculative sources Thomas Owen of Oswestry was almost certainly not the father of the poet Wilfred Owen. Wilfred Owen's father was born in Nantwich (England) on 31st  May 1862.

    In the same way in which the FA Cup spawned many imitators, the foundation of the Football League gave rise to the establishment of any number of similar organizations. 
    As the above cutting shows, these developments didn't take long to trickle down to 'grass roots' level.

    Celtic's first meeting with an English side was a benefit match for East End Poor Children's Dinner against the Birmingham club Mitchell St George's.
    Celtic had only been in existence for 7 months when they attracted a crowd of 20,000 for a match against Corinthian FC that raised  £400  for charity.

In the next 13 minutes, Belenenses scored three goals. When Belenenses were awarded a 90th minute penalty Pepe was ordered to take it as there were no volunteers. He scored to make it 5-4.

    He died of food poisoning at the age of 23.

  • 04/30/17--01:11: England, 1876
  • We are used now to hyperbole in the media. Victorian journalism was more restrained. 
    Here's how The Athletic News introduced the England team who faced Scotland on 5th March 1876:


    The following constitute the English team:

    A.H Savage, Crystal Palace (goal): He is a very good goal keeper and a powerful kick.
    * A H Stratford, Wanderers (back): Can play forward or back, plays well as a full back, being a good and strong tackler.
    E. Field, Clapham Rovers (back): A first rate back.
    E.H Bambridge, Swifts (half back): Is a very useful forward as well, especially at the wings, keeps the ball when he gets possession of it, and is happy as a goal keeper.
    B.G Jarrett, Cambridge University (half back): A real good player, and has shown good form this year.
    Hubert Heron, Wanderers: As a wing player is very useful, and at times brilliant, is fast aside, dribbles skilfully, used to be a little selfish in his style of play, but of late very much improved in this respect; played in the International matches, 1873, 1874 and 1875.
    W.J Maynard, Fist Surrey Rifles (new man): Very powerful and strong forward.
    C.E Smith, Crystal Palace: One of the best players in his team.
    A.W Cursham, Nottingham: One of the best of the Northern players- a very fast and energetic forward. 
    F.Heron,Wanderers: Dribbles well, but is rather too light.
    W.S Buchanan, Clapham Rovers: A good dribbler, the best of his team.
    H. Heron captains the team for England.

    *Stratford did not play; his place was taken by F.T Green (Wanderers)

     





    Hubert Heron



    Scotland won 3-0. It was a case of a heavier, dribbling team being outdone by combination.

  • 05/02/17--14:25: José Laguna
  • Image result 



    José Durand Laguna, known as 'El Negro', was a prolific forward for Huracán. 
    He represented Argentina 4 times, scoring 3 goals.
    His debut came in unusual circumstances. At the 1916 South American Championship of Nations Laguna went to watch the Argentina vs Brazil game at Gimnasia y Esgrima in Buenos Aires (10.07.16).
    Alberto Ohaco was unable to play and Laguna was called from the stand to fill the vacancy. 
    He gave Argentina the lead in the 10th minute. The game finished 1-1.
    Laguna later moved to Paraguay where he played for Olimpia. He also managed the Paraguay national side at 2 South American Championships and the 1930 World Cup.

    The game finished 1-1, Harry 'The Wolf' Wood (playing in his 5th Cup Final) scoring a controversial equalizer for Southampton in the 88th minute. Wood was in an offside position when the ball came to him, reportedly tying his bootlace. The referee, Mr Kirkham, adjudged that the ball had come off a United player. Then followed the  legendary incident in which a naked Foulke berated Mr Kirkham who had to hide in a cupboard to escape the goalkeeper's attentions.

  • 05/12/17--10:06: Llandrindod Wells

  • The increasing popularity of Association football was reflected in the development of grass roots clubs throughout the United Kingdom.
    Here we see a team from Llandrindod Wells, Radnorshire, from the 1883-84 season.
    The jerseys are quite diverse.
    The Spamen currently play in the Mid Wales South Football League, the 5th level of the Welsh pyramid.
